This Week in NJ

Woohoo! Daylight Savings Time and warmer weather are upon us! We are getting close and closer to beautiful Springtime and I cannot wait!

Not much going on (that we know of) during the week, but there are some activities this coming weekend that sound much more fun than running into a gang of angry leprechauns.

Friday, March 15, we here at Vegan in NJ are hosting a Tea Party with M&M Bakery! They have recently added vegan items to their menu! We are celebrating with them by throwing a tea party style social event. $20 ($25 at the door) reserves your spot to snack on lots of amazing vegan treats, coffee and tea. Official menu will be posted soon, but know it includes donuts, zucchini bread, cookies, pecan pie bars, and more! BYOB. Tickets can be purchased here.

NJVeg will be present at Mercer Green Fest this Saturday, the 16th at Rider University. They will answer questions and provide free literature on the benefits of a plant-based diet. They also are welcoming volunteers for this event; particularly needing help setting up (at 10:00 am) and packing up (to roughly 4:30 pm). There is no experience necessary. Come out for an hour or the entire event. Help spread the word that a plant-based diet saves animals, protects the environment, and improves your health! If you are interested in joining NJVeg's outreach team, please contact NJVeg.org@gmail.com or 609.557.7077.

Brooklynites (and those who want to cross those bridges and tunnels) are in for a treat this Saturday. Vegan Shop Up will be hosting their March Pop Up at Pine Box Rock Shop from Noon until 5:00. Discover the best locally made, vegan foods, goods, and more at NYC’s all vegan pop-up market!

New Jersey HipHop is Green will be hosting a showing of "The Invisible Vegan" at the Blue Print Cafe in Newark on Saturday night at 5:00. A vegan dinner buffet will be served, and tickets can be purchased here. This event is also BYOB and non vegans are encouraged to attend!

On Sunday, March 17th, Chilis on Wheels will be providing plant based meals to those in need in the New Brunswick area. They are also looking for volunteers to help. These meals are provided every third Sunday of the month.

Protest Canada Goose will be in action Sunday at the Short Hills Mall from Noon until 2:00. The group will be educating and bringing awareness to the public by handing out leaflets on the cruelty of how coats are made.
